Neighbor Carly of the perfect cupcake fame is also a raptor rehabilitator.  Yep, she nurses injured birds of prey back to health at the Carolina Raptor Center.  Anyway, once the birds who can still make it on their own (ie their injury won’t permanently keep them from being able to hunt, etc) are nursed back to health, they are released back into the wild.  Well, Carly brought a Great Horned Owl home on Tuesday to release in the open space across the street (which is the front end of many undeveloped acres).  Here are pictures from the release of this beauty.

What does it mean to be beautiful in America? For years, pop culture has insisted that beautiful women are tall, thin, and blonde. So what do you do if your mirror reflects olive skin, raven hair, and a short build? Hijas Americanas: Beauty, Body Image, and Growing Up Latina offers a provocative account of the struggles and triumphs of Latina forced to reconcile these conflicting realities. Rosie Molinary combines her own experience with the voices of hundreds of Latinas who grew up in the US navigating issues of gender, image, and sexuality. This empathetic ethnography exemplifies the ways in which our experiences are both profoundly individualistic and comfortingly universal.
